'Slave to Fashion' - A book and educational campaign, 

by Safia Minney MBE

What does modern slavery look like? What can we do to eradicate it?

The award winning international social entrepreneur, author and founder of People Tree, Safia Minney MBE, is leading the way with answers - and she needs our support.

Safia and her team will research and produce micro documentaries and interviews featuring stories of men, women and children caught in slavery, making clothes sold on the high street, worldwide.  To achieve this, they will be going undercover, using networks and relationships Safia has built up with trade unions and Fair Trade organisations internationally to interview workers working as slaves.

This project is supported by War on Want, Fairtrade Foundation, World Fair Trade Organization, Soil Association, True Cost & Eco-Age.

“Safia and her team,‘get it’, they’re trusted and they’re exactly the right people to tell us the stories about the supply chain and what we can do about it” - Lucy Siegle, Journalist

“I love Safia, she is a true pioneer and her passion and drive for a more just and ethical fashion should be an example to all. I look forward to her new venture Slave to Fashion as this is a topic very dear to my heart and modern day slavery is one of the most pressing issues of the day.” – Livia Firth, Creative Director of Eco Age & EthicalFashion Ambassador

“It is predominantly women who make our clothes around the world. These women were promised an amazing future of emancipation. Instead, for many of them it has turned out to be a nightmare, they haven’t seen any emancipation, they’ve just experienced more and more exploitation” - John Hilary, Director, War on Want
